i have the red patent gizehs. sure they aren't the daintiest shoes, but i wanted a padded shoe that was easy to throw on and off when i went shopping. thin sandals just don't cut it for walking around a lot. also, i like the think the patent gives the 'geeky' shoe a lil oomph.

Just joined the Birkenstocks wearers club last week They are just SO comfy, once you get your feet and them together, you don't want to take them off. Sensational. Best of all is for you gals you have some nice colours and patents to do some matching with too. Personally I only like the guys toe post type (as posted by sissyneck above), but the secret is in the sole. You foot feels so wonderfully supported in all the right places.

Every man (and woman) should have a pair of Birkenstocks for summer.

I would go with narrow! My foot is not narrow but I ordered a narrow in the Madrid style. I love mine! I have them in black leather. I think I'm a total convert and I've never been into Birks before... I've always worn Rainbow or Havaiana flip-flops. Birks feel SO good on the feet!

I want those that you posted bad_seed

I must say that I've been wearing Birkenstocks for years now (the Ramses model), and nothing comes even close to the comfort they offer.
They don't look as heavy/clunky on men as on women in my opinion. But still, it's a case of comfort above style. A price I'm willing to pay in this case.

The Arizona model is extremely popular with bloggers right now. I think we have Phoebe Philo and her furckenstocks from a few seasons ago to thank for that.

I've never worn Birks but I do like the Gizehs in gold or patent red, they'd be good for running errands in the summer...

i just see all of the girls walking around in them through brooklyn and I just eyeroll. I remember when people would make fun of the kids who had them because they were such an ugly shoe. I like them in black but I can't say i'd ever pay for them.

^you can thank the hipster "common core" craze for this i think. in a year those same people will likely go back to thinking they're ugly again.

i have to admit i love wearing my felt basel clogs in the colder months. the sandals were never my cuppa.
